hey everyone!
i don't stencil very often, but i was sick this weekend and tedious exacto cutting was about all i could do. at least now i have a new shirt!
front

closeup of the front stencil

back

the back reads "you beautiful anarchist/ (i salute thee" which is from a poem by e.e. cummings, as is the 'raucous rogue' on the front.
also- i'm not exactly sure why there are streaky spots on the bird- i was just patching up a few areas and it looks really strange. it's never done that before. can anyone help me?
please comment!

Is the white part freehand or did you cut that out?!  Not sure about the streaky part.  If you did two coats and used textile medium, maybe the medium and paint separated (can it do that?!), and so that's why it came out streaky?

Was your brush damp, maybe? I'm not sure. Did it show before you heat set it (if you did)?

I absolutely adore e e cummings. He's my favorite, right up there with Robert Bly and Ezra Pound. That shirt is beautiful, you should be so proud of it. I kind of like the lighter streaks, because it makes the bird seem 3D.

When I'm gone, put a little helmet on me. Put a little helmet on me an' set me up an' hit me with a baseball bat. Be a pal an' do it until I clear the fence. You'd do that for a guy, right? Funniest Home Videos, box 2110, Hollywood, CA. VHS preferred.

You did an amazing job! I would also like to know more: did you freehand the white part? Were the letters stencilled, or stamped?
The placement is beautiful.

hey! thanks for the nice comments.
the silvery part was cut out, yes. it took me hours, but i was at home anyway because i was sick. the letters are stamped, except for the cursive which was freehand. i designed both the bird and the silvery swirl stencils.
i'm not sure the poem has a title. i don't think it's actually about anarchy either... but i found it in e.e. cummings' 95 poems. i love ee cummings, but i don't think the shirt really does the poem justice. although i like it as a shirt.
